R.I.P. To James Avery AKA 'Uncle Phil' From "Fresh Prince"
James Avery starred on the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" along side mega star Will Smith from 1990 to 1996, always giving superb advice to Will that translated to millions, He was a great Father Figure to us All! Apparently yesterday Avery was having open heart surgery in Glendale California when things went down hill. James Avery was only 65.
"Fresh Prince" co-star Alphonso Ribeiro made a statement on his FB page:
"The world has lost a truly special man. I am very saddened to say that James Avery has passed. Even though he played my father on TV, he was a wonderful father figure to me in life. He will be deeply missed."
This is not the best news to start the New Year off with. Enjoy these Moments from "Fresh Prince"
